2010 Kawasaki Vulcan 2000 Classic LT
A Powerfully Moving Experience
Road-tripping style is all about big machines, long distances and luxury. Kawasaki already had the biggest, baddest V-twin cruiser on the street, so it was only natural to add a few special items and create the biggest, baddest traveling bike out there — the Vulcan 2000 Classic LT. Starting from a 2,053cc fuel-injected V-twin base, Kawasaki equipped the Classic LT with beautiful leather saddlebags, a custom touring saddle, passenger backrest and a wind-cheating acrylic windshield. The world just shrunk. The biggest Vulcan is ready to transport two people and quite a bit of luggage with power and style to spare.
The striking, top-grain, reinforced cowhide saddlebags form the core of the Classic LT’s touring package. The leather is carefully selected to minimize flaws, and deep-dyed to prevent scraping off the finish. These ideally-sized bags feature a slant-top opening held shut by two 1.5-inch wide leather straps fitted with chrome buckles and stealth quick-release fasteners. Rolled and riveted lid tops, along with metal reinforced upper edges on the bags, help maintain shape and keep unwanted moisture out of the bags.
